This is the last inexile game I'll be buying. Good god. I've never had a game overheat my desktop and cause it to shut down. Never. Not once. I play the latest games too, and my PC can handle them all decently well. This game nearly fried my PC.

What the fuck, inexile? It's an isometric RPG. It looks *worse* than Baldur's Gate II.
Did you try enabling vsync? Because that could really make a big difference.

Apart from that, it might be a good idea to improve your cooling, or underclock your components. Games don't exactly get to tell your computer how much power it should draw. The developers could insert random delays to help systems with inadequate cooling idle a little, but that would reduce performance for everybody.

The technology used is completely different though. You are of course right to have a subjective opinion on the visual quality. But comparing a 3D scene that enables lots of fully dynamic effects to a pre-rendered backdrop is as much apples-vs-oranges as comparing a realtime render to a recorded cinema movie.

At release, the game was playable (though a little sluggish) on my fanless mini-pc with intel integrated graphics. That's pretty good for such a new release; most games that come out these days would be nigh unplayable on such a system. Now take a look at the changelog, and you'll see that they've worked on plenty of performance improvements. They're trying, and I don't think it helps to get angry about it.

Also, they did not write the engine. The game is built on unity.

Who is "Inexile"...? I guess you meant to write "InXile"?...;) You've confused the phonetic pronunciation with the spelling--it's only pronounced "In-ex-ile" but spelled "InXile"...

All in all it's a fairly lightweight game in terms of hardware stress...what's your hardware, OS? Unity 5 is not known to be resource hog--it's kind of middle of the road.

I'm not sure why, but I'm also getting very high both cpu and gpu temperatures, even with new thermal paste + undervolting. It's insane, in first few minutes I'm getting cpu temp 90+ and gpu 1070gtx 90+...

That's really weird, I have an old i5 and a RX580 yet nver had any problem of the sort with the game.
There might be something weird going on with your system.
